Concern Difficulties Rural District ELL Teaching
The objective of this thesis is to investigate the effectiveness of the ESL service provided to ELLs in a particular rural school with a small ELL population. The focus is to gather information from teachers, parents, and administrators, in order to figure out the gaps, weaknesses and difficulties when considering six important points to a fair and balanced introduction to curriculum: positive and welcoming learning environment, appropriate curriculum, full delivery of service, equitable assessment of ELLs, ELL parental involvement and professional development that best fits ELLs, their parents and their teachers. The data collected reveals a school district that doesn’t meet any of these standards. The outcome shows that in this particular small, rural and remote districts with a small ELL population, federal guidelines are not being followed, ELL parents are not being considered and that ELLs needs are not being met in order for them to become successful academically and socially.
